Speech

The speech program is designed to produce effective communicators. Students learn to think critically, speak with confidence, and use teamwork through a variety of speech opportunities both in class and extracurricularly. Because Jesus was the master  communicator, Grace Christian School strives to encourage students to properly reflect the Biblical characteristics Christ displayed through teaching, inspiring, persuading, entertaining, and exhorting others.

"Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man." Colossians 4:6.

The Fall Play

Each year, our speech director, Angie Jolicoeur, works tirelessly with students to put together some of the most spectacular plays you could see - high school or otherwise. Some of her recent successes were Arsenic and Old Lace, Charlotte's Web, Peter Pan, The Wizard of Oz, and Mary Poppins.

Fine Arts

Our students perform each year with great success at the State and National Fine Arts Competition. They perform solo speeches, as well as in acting groups. Click below to learn more about the fine arts opportunities, or check out our speech fine arts gallery.
